There are no ACE-based servers. the current servers can already handle ACE!
that is the good thing about ACE! I believe it makes sense to go with ACE
as a transition, but I dont think there needs to be an ACE server. Servers
should be upgraded to UTF8 directly. They will continue to accept ACE even
without requiring to do anything special because ACE is simply an English
